Waltzing Mouse Stamps Very First Blog Hop...Spring theme 61

Mona Pendleton | Monday, February 22, 2010 @ 1:00 AM | , ,

Hi Everyone! I am very excited to be hopping along with Claire, the talented Owner/Designer of Waltzing Mouse Stamps & many other customers in Waltzing Mouse Stamps very first customer blog hop! Claire challenged us all to create our project featuring a Spring theme! The hop starts at Waltzing Mouse Stamps... If you have not arrived here from: MicheyMoo's please head back to Waltzing Mouse Stamps to stay on the right trail! If you are on track, from here you will hop on over to: Lynne Phellps. Be sure to visit all stops along the hop to see what everyone has created :)




Here is my Easter Blessings card:

With Spring right around the corner, Easter Sunday, blooming Tulips & Daffodils popped into my mind. I used an image from the Waltzing Mouse Very Vintage Labels 4 set to create an ornate frame around the spring flowers. Very Vintage Labels 4 was my very Waltzing Mouse stamp set!!! One of my faves! After inking up the Waltzing Mouse memo/note" image I made a little tag, using one of the smaller Spellbinders Labels 4 die.

From this bird's eye view, you can get a real appreciation for the teensy weensy polka dotted detail in the Waltzing Mouse image :) I colored the flower image using the Copics mentioned below then using a Spellbinders Oval Nestie, cut out the flower image & layered it on the label. After stitching the layers together, I topped off the card with a pretty satin bow, button & butterfly embellishment!

That is all for now - Thanks for looking & I hope to see you along the Hop! I am looking forward to see what everyone has created :)
